Conspiracy being hatched against democracy, government: Maryam Nawaz
Sources say Nawaz's Saudi visit is political and may also be the reason why Saudi officials sent a private plane for Shehbaz. CM reached Saudi on Tuesday and met with multiple officials including Turkish prime minister Binali Yildrim.
Due to Nawaz's travel schedule, the PML-N jalsa which was to be held in Sargodha on Wednesday was also cancelled until further notice.
